With a tenor from the zephyrs,
And au alto from the waves.

Breathing thanks in sweetest odors,

The Long Ago.
How wine wo grow, lu' after years.
How pure there seem our youtbt'ul joys,
When litis is not what it appears,
DtBpile ils pomp, parade, aed uoise..
Fall well shall mom'ry oft recall,
The .urul scenes which boyhood knew.
The old and ne'er forguliuu hull,
Where life, its buds, aud bltsaoms grew.
The shaded laae, the quiet grove,
Tbe wandering stream, beuculh the hill,
The gruty lawn, the sky ubove.
The mutiiiur of the raiiiur rill,
How oft I've sought in hours of eve,
With soul utluuud from uuture's lays,
Along these peaceful vales to breuiue, '
A song ol li.e, aud future days.
And ling'ring there, all fondly true,
With heart a glow, with pleasure's thrill,
Huw swift the bliHbful mouieuU flew.
What floods of joy my soul would fill.
And rjSaro'ry still recall to mind,
W bile fancy paints with o d-ju glow,
Upou the mystie walls of liuio,
Tbe cheiuhud scouvs, of long ago.
Stilt gleaming through the mist of year,
. Which shroud with gloom our ouward path,
Flame youthiul hopes, and youiht'ul fears,
The wail ol woe, the riugiug laugh.
We catch at each familiar strain,
' Wt guae upon departed joy,
Till years of toil, and years of pain,
Beuiu blending iu the strange alloy.
What tbadow's haunt our waking hours,
What forms come gilding soflly by,
Rich decked with uufuding ttowera,
Which biid uu caiiu, whiuii bluutSI OH high.
TJhose flowers ara from the mental soil,
And bud within the teeming brain,
Tua frmtj (J UtQjZ, and sai'iinat m

And.man aiioul Iihs swept adowu,
Tlie eer flowing tide of lile,
Has ruined its song, of marmured sound,
Then paseod from earth, and onrthly strife.
Yt still that strain roc, cirelinjr on,
And rippling o'er the human deep,
It moves the founts of beiiitf 8rroii(f,
Where virtues grow, or ites creep.
Thus deep Within the Infant mind,
The living seeds or trotu ore sown,
While riper years are sure to find,
That precious fruit from them have grown.
And Tai cy pictures olden shapes,
W'e we again each cherished form.
As o'er our soul's enraptured breuks,
The light of youth, lis early dawn.
Those forms still looming throngh the past,
They point away to to reolms on high,
They teach as life is fleeting fast,
The lesson stern prepare to die,
And tho their eyes ore cloed in death,
Their voice no more our souls can thrill,
Their precept's wise, with m are left,
In which they livo triumpbuut still.
All honor to the sainted dead,
Who taught our youthful feel the way,
Alonjr the path of right to tread.
To climes where eaveuly glories lay.
The Ion(r ago, its teaching, wist-,
In riein'rieit skies forever shine, '
As rears, on ycurs, successive rise,
And glide along the stream of time.
Alonjr that ever mulling stream,
Like waters mingling with the sea.
Were faint, and distant is the gleam,
Of fur extending yet to be.

Katharine of Arragon.
FIRST QUEEN TO HENRY VIII.
THE FIRST SKETCHES OF THE SIX ENGLISH QUEENS.
BY S. E. Horner.
In 1485, Puis dark eved dancrhtcr of
Spain, first looked upou its Bunny . bills.
blie was the youngest child of Ferdinaud
and Isubdla, who in their conjugal relation
were latienis ulike to sovereign und sub
joct. Boiu at the time when the crcseut,
wunid tind faded, beneath the prowess of
Sj iiiiif-h chivalry, lu-r earliest days paiMi-d
in id the diu und danger of battle. When
but a fenv month old, Grenada, that
stronghold of tho Moorish dynasty, passed
into the possession of Isabella; and the Al
hnmbia, with its marble hulls and groves
of myrtle, became the homo of tbe youth
ful princess. IsuLellii, Queen of Spain,
was one of the most learned eovereigus of
her time; and she not only provided the
most accomplished tut ore, but devoted all
the time she conld snatch from the cares
of government, to a personal supervision ol
her daughter's education. When Katha
rine was sixteen years of uge, her baud was
demanded hi roaniage, by lienry 7ih, ol
England, for his son Arthur, Triune of
Wales; and as the alliance met the appro
bation of the Spanish sovereigns, the prin
cess embarked tor England, and alter a
prosperous voyage reached Plymouth on
the iid of Oct. 1501. King lleury, l'riuce
Authur ai.-. mite, advanced to meet the
Infanta. Ferdinand had stipulated iu true
Moorish custom, that no man should look
upon her fuce until she became a wife.
When K o Henry was told this, he pro
tested, that " if she were even iu her bed,
would see her and speak with her." He
resolutely iusisted, that an interview
granted. Now for tho first time the
youii pair looked upon each other. On
the 13th of Nor., the Infunta was mar
ried to a husband her junior hy ten months.
The hands of these royul children were
joined by tho Arch'iishop of Canterbury,
and the pugcatitry which followed, was, in
tiplendor and expeuso, worthy of the illus
trious descent of the 'bride. Dance, tour
tiument, and tableau, followed iu quick suc
cession, till the royal pair departed for
their principality of Wales. They were
much beloved by their subjects; but their
popularity and happiness were short lived;
lor in less than six mouths Arthur died
plague. The Queen, the good Elizabeth
York, 6howed all kiudiieos to her widow
ed uaughter-in-luw, and during the b'uort
time si e lived, Kathariue ku?7,- hi9 had
one true friend in Eujjiiud. As but one
intra or fc.Kt!!;,i tiie's affer bad been paid,
her n:enU wished her to return to Boain:
'"Hi Henry, who had great des ro to hand
Spanish coin, proposed his sccoud sou,
(although her junior by hvo years) as the
future Luibband of Kathariue. Her parents
consented, mid notwithstanding she ex-
expressed great disinclination to a second
English marriage. Still she begged her
father to act as suited bis convenience, and
uot to regard her tate. A dispensation
was therefore obtained from the Pope, and
betrothal took place in 1503. Soon
after Henry, having lost his wife, was do
sirou of marrying agaiu, and tJ the dis
may of Ferdinand, dvmauded iu marriage
Joanna, eldest tintcr of Katharine, tho iu
sane Queen of Castile. He was told that
grief for the death of her husband had in
duced iusauity; Henry replied that ho
knew the lady; aud her illness was no ob
jection. But unscrupulous though ho was,
he felt that if his demand was complied
with, Kathariue's marriage must bo brok
en oil', as the three-fold couuection was of
such a nature as would outrage Christen
dom, llo therefore induced Prince Henry,
the day bo'ore he was fifteen years of ege,
to protest against marrying Katharine.
Al this time, as in after years, to Prince
Ueury, the value of a possession depended
npou tbe difficulty of its attuiuuieut; and
as soon as any opposition was made to bis
mariiage with Katharine, . be suddenly
found himself hopelessly in love with the
Kiug Henry prohibited their meeting,
lest they should form a clandestine nuiou.
Can we imagine anything more trylu to
tbe higb-Kpinted Caatilliau, than being for
lidduu to meet tbe boy, for whom she had
expressed isuch decided repugnance, lest
she should tratsgress all tiqtiette by a
runaway marriage f But the English am
bassador, alter seeing the distracted Queen
Joanna, told the Kiug that Lis marriage
was uot to be thought of. lie then returu:
ed to fcis otiginal design of marrying Prince
Henry to Katharine, which marriage took
place oa the llh of June, 1509. Kathar
ine was at this time exceedingly attractive,
aud as she bad been married but a few days
at the time of ber corouatiou, " she was
dressed a bride, iu white embroidered
satin j feef hair, which Was black, audi very
beautiful, hung at length down her tmck.
almost to her feet, she wore a coronal set
with many oricnte gems t Ilenrr Is said
to have been exceedingly fair, and as well
proportioned as possible.
On the 1st day of 1511, a son was born
to them, which occasioned tho greatest joy
throughout the realm the babo took cold
at us fplcndid christening and died on the
saa of February. Henry at this time
invaded France, snd left Katharine regent
of the kingdom, with greater power than
had ever been conferred npon a female re
gent of England ; thus acknowledging the
cotibcleiice he felt In her talents aud integ
rity. Nothing could exceed tho prudence,
kindness, and bravery with wh'ch she con
ducted the government. During her re
gency the victory of Floddcn-field was
achieved, Katharine bore oue duntrhter.
who lived to bo the bloody Marv of En-e-
lish history,' and four sons, all of whom, to
her great sorrow, died shortly after their
oirtn. Arter the oisnppoiutroeiit occasioned
by the death of his third son. Urnrv. created
his natural son (Henry Fibray) Duke ol
Richmond, and owned with a degrro ol
parade, which showed the Queen how
earnestly he desired male offspring. Katha
rine was self-denying, and punctilious ia all
religious obsei vance. No tiati ve-boru prin
cess ever identified herself more fully with
the iutercRt of England. Erusmus savs of
the royol pair at this time, " What house
hold is there among the subiectR of their
realm, Umt con offer an example of such
united wedlock J Where can a wife be
found, better matched with the best of hus
bands." Soon after this picture was drawn,
Katburiue for tho first time felt tho Diimrs
jeujonsy, in consequence of tho admira
tiou of Heury for one of her mnids, Mary
Boleyn ; but that you;ig lady listened to
judicious nctvice or the Queen, married
gentleman to whom she was "betrothed,
and thus removed herself from tbe dangerous
notice of the King. Anna, sister of Mary
Boleyn, now returned from France, whither
fhe'weut ns maid of honor to Marv. sinter
o. Henry. She was beautiful, fascinating
and ambitions, and probably Henry's reccut
fancy for Mary Busty n, preveuted Katha
rine from suspecting him of a still stronger

The health bf the Queen between the
years of 1523 and 1526 was so feeble as to
give reason to suppose that her death was
rapidly approaching ; Indeed, she thought
her days to bo numbered, aud well uigh
finished. This was probably tho reasou
that a tlivorce was not sooner agitated.
The first intimation that lleury gave of his
intentions, wus grief of conscience for having
inarriea ins urothcr'H wiaow, winch mar
riage was followed by judgment from God,
causing the death of his sous, aud the hope
less ill-health of the Queen.
The idea of a divorce had now fairly
taken possession of Henry's mind, aud
when u " m&u gets his will, iu place of his
conscience, he is of all men most unman
ageable. He spared ho pains to further
own ends, aud cripple the efforts of
die' friendless Queen. The messengers j
which Katharine seat to her nephew, tho
Emperor of Germany, begging assistance
defending her own, and daughter's
rights, were iutercopted. Messengers were
sent to Rome, intimating that Kathariue
wished to enter a convent; ou hearing
wliicn sho said, " that her duiy as a moth
er forbade, even if her inclination hud led
that way." Sho appeared in court wheu
summoned to defend the solidity of her
marriage, aud appealed to the Church of
Rome. She then addiessed the King w ith
tenderness and eloquence, telling him
that for more than twenty years she had
been his unquestioned wife, borne him many
children, loved when he had loved, and en
deavored iu all things to please Win, aud
that she had the 1 opes dispensation, giv
ing license to marry him, now under its
leaden recall. Ueury tried various methods
obtain her ranct-.on to a divorce. She
remained inflexible and defied his power;
aud Henry's repudiated wife was the ouly
person who could defy him with impunity;
had lost his love, but never forfeited bis
esteem."- Threats and persuasions al.ke
proving powerless, Kathariue was driveu
from Wiudsor castle. She went forth in
her proud integrity, never to look upon the
face of husband or child. The Church of
Rome now pronounced her marriage valid,
and Henry w ell nigh gave up the idea of a

would reprove them, and tell them to pray

Morris IIestont was a yonng man "who
had been in business, only two years. The
eapital on which he commenced, was less
than two thousand dollars, and the whole
of this ho suved from his salary. He was
active, industrial and intelligent. But in
one thing he was indiscreet. And that
was selling too largely to a single customer.
No wonder that he started and turned palo
on hearing bad uews from this customer :

Scarcely had these words passed from his

without a word of auswer from the room.
For the space of nearly ten miuutes,
Heston walked the floor of the apartmeut
iu which bo had been left alone, every mo
ment expecting the retai n of his betrothed,
but sho came uot back. At the end of this
period, he left- the house iu so wrotched a

meditated self-destruction. .But wiser
thoughts restored him to better feelings.

It was but gilded clay, aud not aue ciay
as be bad vainly believed.
The effect of this double misfortune was
altogether paraluing. Hestoa fell iuto a
state of gloomy inaction. Friends, urged
him to look tbe world oraveiy m taa lace
once mo it, aud begin again, who a stout

"No I have been mocked once. .Let
that suffice. I will not run the risk of an

Uttto tftVct had all this upon the mlml of

At tho end of a year there was a gay
wedding in the city j gay and imposing
enough to create a flutter .u certain circles.
A young merchant, who h ad started in bu
siness at the same time with Heston, nnd
being more successful, had tried another
venture in life, even tbe doubtful tine of
leading to the alter a maiden w ho had been
false to her first lover, turning heartlessly
from him when the sunshine loft his path.
This had effect to spur new life into the
almost dormant energies of oar young friend.
From that timo ho walked abroad with a
firmer tread, aud a countenance more eleva

return he showed a cheerful aspect, and I
somtehing like p enlul side to his char
acter. The trao man in him was moving
with anew vitality, and throwing off tho
dead husks of feeling which closed around
him closely as cerements.
Ere another year bad gone by, an offer
to commence business again or rather to
become a partner ia an old established
house was accepted, and he started in the
world once more, moving with a steadier
step, and with surer prospects. And he
loved again loved as deeply aud far more
wisely loved one, whose light of lore for
him was nn undying flame that no waters
of misfortnite could ever quench.
Morris Heston was all right with tbe
world again, and wiser and happier for the
brief but desolate storm which had so sadly
married the beautiful garden of his young
life. Frospcrity crowued his bnsiues ef
fort, and love made bis borne a Paradise.
Ifow and then he met on the street, or
In social parties, her who had uluyed him
so falsely in his darker hours, never with
out an almost audibly breathed utterance
of thanks for the misfortune which bad
proved her quality. She was growing year

of the world ; her once beautiful face
changing steadily, until, to eyes unveiled
by sensuality, it wore a rcpellaut aspect.
a o ner uiisDauu s siue sue was rarely seen

It was scarcely a month later, when the
husband of this weak, vain, unprincipled
woman returned from his business one eve

hopelessly wrecked, and Lis babe worse than
motherless. II,s wife had abandoned all
ber sacred duties, aud throwing love, hon

her from the true path, only to flinsr ber

Thank God for misfortune!' exclaimed
Mr. Heston, ia the silence of bis swelling
heart. Jt came to him first from the lips
of his own true wife, who had grown daily
dearer to him since the blessed hour wbeif
sho had given him her hand and heart to
gether. 'Misfortune I Oh, no 1' said he.
'It was no misfortune but a blessing 1 The
sun was still shininir in the sky : only a
few clouds hid me from Ilia loving face.' -
Almost tearfully did Morris Heston gath

with such loving glances, that half-wonder

a new delight swelltug in her heart that
gave a new beaaty to her pure countenance.
'1 bless uod, dear Mary V said the young
moo, as she carao to bis side, drawn by tbe
magnetism of bis love, "that yoa are my

tbe mother of my p eious babes.'
Vtry shortly that bappy wife and moth

husband, the touch thrilling him to tbe in
most of his spirit.
Was it misfortune that clouded om" young
friend's life T No no. iS'ol uUfor'.one
in the darker sense the etcming evil was
ouly a blessing in disg.t'sa. Aud so, to the
nght-thtuUing, therignt-feeling, tbe right
hearted, will all the darker dispensations of
life prove themselves blessings. Let us be
patient, hopeful, trusting, wheo the sky is
shadowed, nor tremble at the storm that
seems deso'a'-ing the earth. 'The cloudy

Some time ago, on the Sabbath day, we
